Status of this Memo

The Application Configuration Access Protocol (ACAP) is designed to
support remote storage and access of program option, configuration
and preference information. The data store model is designed to
allow a client relatively simple access to interesting data, to allow
new information to be easily added without server re-configuration,
and to promote the use of both standardized data and custom or
proprietary data. Key features include "inheritance" which can be
used to manage default values for configuration settings and access
control lists which allow interesting personal information to be
shared and group information to be restricted.
